    Boybands are back

    Boybands are back

    ARE boybands dead? Well, according to Backstreet Boys and Westlife, they are still pretty much alive and kicking even after all these hard years.

    Read about how the veteran boybands are back with a vengeance (with a new album each) in the latest issue of Galaxie, out on newsstands tomorrow.

    To pop music lovers who think good ol’ BSB is no longer relevant to the industry, this is what A.J. McLean has got to say, “A lot of bands today don’t want to admit that they’re doing pop. But it is pop ’cause their music is so well structured. It has great melodies and hooks, just like ours.”

    Hitting at punk-pop bands of the moment like Good Charlotte and Fall Out Boy, he adds, “What is pop? It’s popular music that is played most on the radio or MTV, or generates the most album sales.”

    Galaxie, through its celebrity rep Philip Berk in Los Angeles, also talks to doting mum Jennifer Garner, who proves that the hand that rocks the cradle can kick butt too as she gets armed and fabulous in The Kingdom. Her new movie and baby daughter aside, the 35-year-old also speaks passionately about her hubby Ben Affleck.

    On the hot gossip front, check out the paparazzi shots of Christina Aguilera’s first baby shower. Or if you fancy something more spicy and sexy, the Spice Girls are not shy to flaunt it all at their reunion onstage at the Victoria Secret’s fashion show.

    For fans of Asian entertainment, you can read all about your favourite Asian stars in Hello Bolly and Go East. Shah Rukh Khan is box office king in Bollywood again!

    Om Shanti Om, his latest release which was pitted against director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya, is clearly in the lead at the box office. The film, co-produced by Shah Rukh, is minting money outside of India as well.

    As for Lollipop and Han Ye-seul, their X-factor has contributed to their soaring popularity in the Far East. Since it is holiday season, the good-hearted people behind Galaxie are spreading some joy by giving away hundreds of free tickets to The Golden Compass and Alien vs Predator: Requiem.

    Galaxie is a fortnightly entertainment magazine published by Star Publications (M) Bhd. The magazine also has a blog at, which provides pop culture reports and views on the latest happenings in entertainment. – By Noorsila Abd Majid
